    Lucky gits!

    We'd love to be able to escape to the French Alps for Christmas!

    Unfortunately, for us holidays are barred, we'll both be slaving away over christmas, helping to feed the obscene 24/7 consumerism this time of year brings in the UK.:cry:

    The French really do hibernate in the winter. Here in central France it can and does get very cold. We go to Spain for the worst of it. It doesn't usually last long the cold weather, and we have seen temperatures in the high twenties here in February but, if you know where to look there is still lots to do, but it's mainly the ex-pats who carry on as if its still midsummer.
    Sure you will have a great time while here though!
